Devon Wildlife Trust’s (DWT) is offering its popular ‘adopt a species’ scheme this year as an alternative gift for Valentine’s Day.

Launched in 2009 it allows people to support the trust’s conservation work in the county, protecting habitats and species for future generations to enjoy.

People can choose to ‘adopt’ from a list of five lovable species, dormouse, otter, dolphin, bat and hedgehog.

With each £20 donation, purchasers will receive a soft toy of their chosen species along with a welcome letter and other items.

DWT’s Phoebe Grubb said: ‘This is a great way for people to support our work, ‘adopt a species’ makes the perfect gift for nature loving adults at this time of the year.”

The money raised through the scheme goes towards the costs of carrying out conservation work throughout the county benefiting these species and the habitats that they need to thrive.
